Different PGP Keys for Different Devices

I have a mentor who recommended KMS once I start my company. However
for now I have a key pair for my Linux laptop that expires in 3 months
and a key pair that expires in 4 months on my PC. This is just so I
don't get locked out.

I have considered creating a separate key pair for each device
(Android Phone, Mac Laptop), however, as all of these keys can unlock
the passwords it seems like I should just use the key pair that
expires in 3 months. I don't know Computer Science so if someone could
explain that this is reasonable for now that would be great.

My second question is what is the most ideal practice with Git? I have
my .password-store/ directory stored on a secured Git server. Should I
delete the remote and replace it with the new repository once I
generate new keys?

Thanks for answering my questions. I'm a Schizophrenic. I learned
Pascal and C++ in high school but I majored in music and it was only
later in life that I decided to pursue a career as a technologist. I
don't have any regrets about developing Schizophrenia because it's led
me to this field. I have to thank Fr. Anthony, a Priest and
Benedictine Monk for teaching me the basics so I could learn later in
life enough to be able to prototype some software.
